Learners Permit

Becoming a licensed driver is one of the all time biggest rites of passage. However, it also comes with a great deal of responsibility and that’s why the state of Florida requires all potential drivers who are seeking a Florida learner’s license to take and pass the Florida Learner’s Permit exam. Let’s take a look at some of the key information you need to know about the Florida Learner’s Permit Test.

Florida Learner’s Permit Test Material and Format

The Florida Learner’s Permit test consists of 50 multiple choice questions that are designed to test the examinee’s knowledge of Florida’s rules of the road and road signs. In order to pass the test you must get at least 40 of the 50 questions correct. You will have 60 minutes to complete the test and must complete it in one sitting.

Florida Learner’s Permit Test Eligibility

To be eligible to take the Learner’s Permit Test you must be under the age of 18. To verify your age and identity you will need to provide your name, date of birth, and the last five digits of your social security number or Florida ID card number.

Taking the Florida Learner’s Permit Test Online

Ticket School’s Florida Learner’s Permit Test is approved by the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) and may be taken online from any internet-connected device. If you do not pass the exam on your first attempt, you may retake it. You are allowed up to three online attempts. If you do not pass the test during one of those three online attempts, you will be required to take subsequent attempts at your local driver license or tax collector’s office.

Note: The DHSMV randomly selects some individuals who have passed the exam online to retake the exam in person to verify their results. This random process is designed to keep cheating and test fraud to a minimum and Ticket School has no control over whether or not you are selected.

Getting Your Florida Learner’s License

Before getting your Florida Learner’s Permit Test in addition to passing the Florida Learner’s Permit Test you must also complete the Florida Drug and Alcohol Course (TLSAE), which is also offered 100% online by Ticket School. Once you receive your Florida Learner’s License there will be certain restrictions in place including the requirement to have a licensed driver at least 21 years old or older in the front passenger seat of your car while you are driving. You will also be restricted to driving only during certain hours. These restrictions are gradually lifted as part of Florida’s graduated driver licensing system once you have had your Florida Learner’s License a sufficient amount of time.
